Following the success of our past edition, the Marble Museum’s gardens are once again transformed into an outdoor theatre. This year’s selection of films is focused around the subject of work – or more precisely on how to escape the economic crisis through creativity and imagination – and has been curated by film maker Gabriele Lucchetti and journalist Davide Vannucci.
